WiFi Specialist / Tech Support at Crossroads Foundation

How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

WiFi Specialist / Tech Support

Help us optimise our WiFi network as our Global Distribution operations is relying on cloud-based systems.

Project Details

What we need

  • Conduct a survey of existing WiFi infrastructure
  • Recommend improvements to optimize WiFi network across the site

Background

Our current network was installed 2013 and although we have some new equipment donated recently, we are in need of a specialist engineer to help us optimize the system. A deep understanding of WiFi networks or technical support is required.

What we have

Desktop workstation available if required

Why this is important

Our Global Distribution operations, which includes managing donations, processing inventory, stock control and local and global distribution of goods relies on cloud-based systems for which we need reliable and strong WiFi network! For your information, Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global needs. We believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together. We offer four global crossroads services: (1) Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong's quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply. (2) Global X-perience: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor (3) Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power. (4) Global Hand: This provides a 'matching' website for public- private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organizations who wish to address global need.
